It's never a good thing when you lose two guys in the Rule 5 draft

This morning, the Yankees lost two prospects in the mysterious MLB Rule 5 draft, an event that nobody but lawyers understand.We lost Jake Cave to the Reds, and what stings more deeply is that he was the second player picked, which means he was probably a goner from the gitgo. Cave looked like a nice, up-and-coming outfielder, and it's rare for the Yankees to have enough of them to...

Could the Yankees play an exhibition game in Cuba? Horrors, somebody, shield Hal Steinbrenner's eyes, so he doesn't have to see the talent he won't bid on

One suponna time, the mighty New York Yankees paved a yellow-brick road for Cuban players into the emerald cities of Major League Baseball. We signed Orlando Hernandez - the first and truest el Duque - a critical component of their last great team. The idea of Cuban stars escaping Castro to play for his most hated symbol of capitalism - the goddamm Yanquis - seemed a fait accompli...

Hart says Braves 'will be better' following 67-win finish

ATLANTA (AP) The last time the Atlanta Braves finished below 70 wins was 1990, when they were in a rebuilding process based on pitching.

Too Many Wrong Mistakes

I didn’t have much to say about Tuesday’s Mets loss anyway, other than the fact that Matt Wisler and Adonis Garcia are shaping up to be huge thorns in the side of the Mets for years to come. Wisler pitched seven strong innings and Garcia had a two run double as the Mets lost 6-2. The Nationals lost as well, so the Magic Number to clinch the division is six. So there you go. But...

Alexi Amarista may have earned a new nickname on Wednesday afternoon: "The Deceiver."
